here in new york. first, though, let's go to the scene, reynolds wolf live in elbow beach, bermuda. looks like not a good time there this morning. >> reporter: well, things are improving compared to last night where the brunt of the storm really came just to our west around 11:00 local time through midnight, really the worst of it. this storm, although it did not make a direct hit, you've got to remember that bermuda is a small area. and this storm when you include the outflow is nearly 1,000 miles wide. when you think about bermuda, it's not one island, but 138, and joined together is about the equivalent land mass of 1/3 of washington, d.c. very easy target for this immense hurricane. the effects we've had here, some tremendous waves that right along the coast. we've got video we took yesterday right around sun down. huge waves crashing onshore. that not only of course caused some major beach erosion, but at the same time, flooded some roadways right along the coast.
